1. First get your set up ready, line a sheet tray with parchment paper or wax paper. Blow up your balloons, being careful not to blow them up too big, since the tops of them will ultimately be the size of your bowls. It’s wise to use smaller thicker balloons so you can get more bowls out of your batch of chocolate. We used balloons we purchased at the local grocery store.
Add half your chocolate to a bowl set over simmering water, making sure the bottom doesn’t touch the water or it will seize up, and stir until it’s completely melted. Remove from the heat, add the remaining chocolate bit by bit, and stir until all the chocolate is smooth and melted. This step will help to temper the chocolate, which makes the chocolate firm up and give it snap. Let the chocolate cool for 8-10 minutes, you don’t want the chocolate so hot that the balloons pop!
